Words and Music Series with Rare Song

Join us at The Waterworks on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 when EMMA Concert Association presents Words and Music Series with Rare Song — 1:00pm-2:00pm.  Free of charge and family-friendly.

Peter and Patricia DeWitt perform with recorders viola da gamba and harpsichord. These instruments were used both in the Renaissance – encompassing most of the 15th and 16th centuries in Europe, and in the Baroque – encompassing the 17th and part of the 18th centuries.

Vocal music was predominant in the Renaissance, including sacred motets and masses and secular madrigals and chansons. Instrumental music at that time was either patterned after vocal models or was developed from the dance. In the Baroque, instrumental music became more independent, taking on distinctive forms of its own. The DeWitts will illustrate these trends using music by such composers as Isaac, Senfl, Ortiz, Cabezon, and the ever popular Anonymous from the Renaissance and Frescobaldi, Scarlatti, Bach and Handel from the Baroque.

The Words and Music Series is an exploration of cultural connections through song, story and dance.
